Eastbourne County Bankruptcy Court Information

 
 
When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, filing for bankruptcy can be an efficient way to remedy the situation and give you an opportunity to have a fresh start.

Bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it will remain on your Credit History for six years, which can influence your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another form of insolvency is an IVA, which might be suitable for those who have equity to protect, or a profession which is excluded from bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the necessary documentation will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Eastbourne we have included the court details below. You only need to contact the court if you already have everything prepared, including your Statement of Affairs and Debtor's Petition, and you are ready to finalise the Bankruptcy Order.

To arrange a consultation you can complete this online form, and an experienced Advisor will be in touch to assess your situation and advise you accordingly.
